However, this year a coach and his family couldn't have asked for a better weekend for the programs return.
Michael Bellile was all smiles this weekend. However, that wasn't the case this time last year with his ski class.
"We signed up for it last year too, so we were all disappointed when it got cancelled for the weather," said Bellile's sister Heather.
Low temperatures stopped dozens of families from learning, bonding and skiing together.
"We have perfect conditions this year we just had a fresh snowfall it's was freshly groomed last night," said Bellile.
Passing the sport on to his 7 year- old niece Madilynn and twelve other families made the year long wait worth it.
"I've been hearing the kids 'I want my own ski's now!' So I think we facilitated lifelong skiers'," said Bellile.
Every hill, climb and brought a new challenge.
"I'm [going to] keep going," said Madilynn.
However, just having snow on the ground this year was an accomplishment.
"We [couldn't] ask for better conditions," said Bellile.
Bellile hopes the class size gets even bigger next year. Each skier received free equipment for the class from Mel's Sporting Goods. The clinic cost $10.
